Barr. Dare, a chieftain of the All progressives Congress (APC) and an aspirant contesting for senate in Kogi western senatorial district, paid  Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira (₦250,000) to the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), to lift the ban imposed on the Community High School Kakun three years ago, which barred students of the school from writing any examinations conducted by the body.

And that they should have confidence in them like any other student from the other schools.

“I call for concerted efforts from all stakeholders, and the students themselves, to ensure the school maintains its integrity and competence, in order to produce the expected human resource needed for the development of the area in particular, and the nation as a whole,” said Abayomi.
